Hmmm. My grandfather always told me, “If you’re going to do anything, do it right or don’t do it at all.” I’ve tried to live by that advice. This is why I signed up for a series of classes at the local Apple store. I just got the new iPad and I don’t want to be one of those people who use it as a fancy toy!
One of my plans for the iPad is to use it for designing when I’m away from home. I downloaded an app named “Penultimate” to use to sketch out knitting and weaving designs. I can choose from an array of “paper.” (I checked its Paper Store, but, alas, there was no knitting graph paper to use or even purchase!)
Not surprisingly, the user benefits by having a stylus. I found out today that the Apple stores “no longer carry them” (why not if Apple sells apps that use them?) and was directed by two of their employees (does Apple hire anybody over 30?) to buy it via Amazon. So I walked about 25 yards to Best Buy and bought a stylus there. (I may have to paint the stylus with nail polish in some hideous color so I’m not so apt to set it down and forget about it.)
I didn’t find an Apple class on using Penultimate, so now I need to figure it out.
